carefully. >> would you consider the current egyptian regime an ally of the united states? >> i don't think that we would consider them an ally, but we don't consider them an enemy. they are a new government that is trying to find its way. they were democratically elected. i think that we will have to see how they respond to this incident, how they respond to, for example, maintaining the peace treaty with israel. >> i want to bring in nick kristof and look at the cover this week. the agents of outrage. we'll talk about that, as well. couldn't be happier to have the two of you and your expertise in this area. i want to start with what happened in libya and give us your perspective. these assailants were heavily armed. it they seemed to be organized. does it seem to you perhaps to have been timed for 9/11, was it an attack of opportunity? >> i really don't know. but it is unusual in that libya is really the most pro american country in the region. the ambassador was be loved in libya. he had helped save benghazi, the city in which he was murdered. and libya as responded pretty appropriately.
to -- all it is doing is antagonizing a very serious and volatile situation. france, like the united states is a democracy and we ber hind the issues of free speech and the press but when you have a tense situation where you've lost four american lives this is just going to make the situation a lot worse. this person who has published this had also published a cartoon, a negative cartoon i think about a year ago and the same type of situation. i know the french government asked him not to print it yet he did. this is going to become in my opinion -- >> the acting head of the egyptian brotherhood freedom and justice party told reuters he is going to call for a u.n. treaty against insulting religion. is that taking it too far? >> well, we are a democracy and we feel very strongly about our constitution and freedom of speech and freedom of the press and i think that's what we have to stand by as a democracy but we have to do whatever we can to, number one, as a country condemn this type of situation because of what occurs. let me give you my opinion on this. i think that part of the issue is a
in issued this statement -- "it's shocking that a candidate for president of the united states would go behind closed doors and declare to a group of wealthy donors that half of the american people view themselves as victims entitled to handouts and are unwilling to take personal responsibility for their lives. it's hard to serve as president for all americans when you've disdainfully written off half the nation." in a late-night news conference, romney responded. >> well, you know, it's not elegantly stated, let me put it that way. i'm speaking off the cuff in response to a question, and i'm sure i could state it more clearly and in a more effective way, but it's a message which i'm going to carry and continue to carry, which is, look, the president's approach is attractive to people who are not paying taxes because, frankly, my discussion about lowering taxes isn't as attractive to them. and therefore, i'm not likely to draw them into my campaign as effectively as those who are in the middle. >> let me britain in anne kornblut for "the washington post" and a politics reporter for roll
a turnaround. we've got a campaign which is tied with an incumbent president of the united states. i've got a very effective campaign. it's doing a very good job. but not everything i say is elegant, and i want to make it very clear, i want to help 100% of the american people. >> in back-to-back interviews on "60 minutes," both candidates laid out their vision and admitted mistakes. romney said he spoke inelegantly. the president admitting he hadn't changed the culture in washington. >> i'm the first one to confess that the spirit that i brought to washington, that i wanted to see instituted where we weren't constantly in a political slugfest but were focused more on problem solving, you know, i haven't fully accomplished that. >> here's the brand-new politico/george washington university battleground poll. the president has a slight lead over romney, and barring a major event, the window may be closing for romney to make inroads in those key battleground states. let me bring in real politics reporter erin pike and politico's alexander burns. good morning to both of you. erin, not only did
think the public may watch with anger as the united states jeopardizes, again, our bond rating worldwide. >> there's another issue that's out there related to the election, congressman and last night john lewis made an impassioned argument against voter i.d. laws. it was emotional. i want to ask you about reality. can these laws potentially change the outcome of this upcoming election? >> absolutely. when you consider the fact that many african-americans in the south were not born in hospitals as my father and his brothers were not, and so they have no birth certificate. if they are no longer driving, then it's going to be difficult for them to show government issued i.d. if you have government issued i.d. in my home state it will cost you $21. that's a poll tax. we need to shave off a couple of percentage points like in states of ohio, virginia, florida and we lose the states. it's a very serious issue. it's a solution looking for a problem. there is no voter fraud in the united states of america. and i hope the public can come to the conclusion that all of a sudden republicans are movi
the cards. i mean, you're going to be president of the united states. listen, ann romney is a very sincere and wonderful person. i have no doubt that mitt romney is a good person. but in terms of being a president, based on the policies that they've laid forward, based on what he said he will do and then how they've changed their position, or etch-i-sketched it away, he has to say what he will actually stand for. pointed out by his own opponent saying nobody knows what he stands for. i think ann romney does as best she can to warm him up, but it's not a question of warmth. it's a question of specificity. on this question, as it relates to not burdening the middle class more and getting rid of some of the very popular things that are so important, like mortgage deduction and child tax credits. those impact people directly. >> let me ask you about what congress can and should be doing. big issues facing you now, funding the government past september 30th, the farm bill, the fiscal cliff. what happens if the election passes and nothing gets done? how do you make this work? >> that has been th
